The Art Deco Rex Cinema, Berkhamsted had only been open for 4 years when Casablanca was released in November 1942, and in January 1943 in the UK. My grandparents saw Casablanca at the Rex on 8th June 1943 as noted in grandads film log book. Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman starred in this romantic, culturally, historically, and aesthetically significant drama. "Here's looking at you, kid"

 I grew up going to the Rex in the 1970's. I remember people smoking inside, and watching the smoke rise into the beam of light.
